Epra’s latest fuel price review that increases the cost of petrol, diesel and kerosene by Sh7.63, Sh5.75 and Sh5.41 per litre, respectively is a clear indication that UhuruRuto have messed the country. What it means is that everything has to be adjusted upwards to remain operational. At the end of the day the common man shall shoulder all the cost in fuel increment that means the impact of tax and fuel levies is shifted to citizens.
Truth is that over 50% of the cost of fuel in Kenya are taxes and levies.
It beats logic for KENYANS to go lining up chearing Dp Ruto when his govt has clearly failed and is hurting us and the economy.
If Ruto is serious, let him and his Jubilee govtreview those taxes downwards.
Salaries have remained the same or have been adjusted downwards due to this Pandemic and here we have fuel prices that keep moving upwards.
There’s a very simple answer to this mess. Eurobond and SGR. 300 billion Kshs missing. No audits to date. No investigations. Why?
